Prepare the tomatoes first. Peel the tomatoes by making a cross-cut at the base of each one and place in a bowl. Cover with boiling water and leave for one minute. Remove the tomatoes from the water and slip the skins off. Finely chop the flesh and place in a bowl.

Add the oil, a generous amount of seasoning, garlic and thyme and leave to macerate for at least 15 minutes or as long as you can – the salt will draw out the juices and mingle with the oil and make a really delicious dressing.

Griddle the bread on a griddle or toast until golden and crisp. Place the cottage cheese in a bowl and whisk in the oil and seasoning. Squeeze in a little lemon juice and add a little zest to lift the flavours and set aside. Spoon the tomatoes generously onto the toast and scatter with torn up basil leaves. Spoon the cottage cheese on top and serve with napkins.
